Top-level coaching, state-of-the-art athletic facilities and a fun, Christian environment are just a few of the reasons why students join the Grand Canyon University club sports program. Offering you an excellent way to socialize, stay active and compete, the GCU club sports program offers more than 30 different teams. Organized club teams play at the local and national levels and compete against top universities in the nation. We encourage our students not to miss out on the opportunity to be a part of something great. Here is a step-by-step guide on how to join a club sports team at GCU:
Become a Student
Are you not currently enrolled at GCU but want to get involved with our extensive club sports program? If so, then apply to become a student at our institution. Start today by filling out the Request More Information form on this page.
Get in Contact
If you know what club sports activity you want to participate in, then contact the team’s coach. If your activity of choice is a contact sport, then speak with the coach to learn the scheduled athletic clearance date.
Pay Registration Dues
Next, pay the registration dues that are required for your team of choice. You will also need to sign the waiver for your sport and have a current insurance card available.
Obtain a Physical
Before club sports student-athletes are cleared by our club sports medicine staff to participate in practices, workouts or competitions, they must obtain a physical. You can either bring in a general sports physical from the last 12 months or have a physician complete the Club Sports Physical Form. Incoming club sports student-athletes who will be participating in a contact sport will be scheduled to take their baseline concussion test within the first week of school.
